Harnaaz Sandhu, a Punjabi beauty queen who represented India at the 70th Miss Universe pageant in 2021, has won the title. Harnaaz, 21, was crowned Miss Universe 21 years after Lara Dutta has crowned Miss Universe in 2000.
Harnaaz Sandhu won the competition in Eilat, Israel, beating out competitors from Paraguay and South Africa. Harnaaz was crowned at the ceremony by Andrea Meza, a former Miss Universe 2020 from Mexico. The Miss Universe pageant was broadcast live across the world.
Paraguay and South Africa were the first and second runners-up, respectively.
All of the candidates had to answer the same question in the Top 3 round. “What advice would you give to young ladies watching on how to deal with the challenges they experience today?” they were asked.

According to Harnaaz, “Well, I believe the greatest pressure on today’s kids is to believe in themselves. To understand that you are unique and that this is what makes you beautiful, stop comparing yourself to others and instead focus on more important global issues. This, I believe, is what you must comprehend. You are the leader of your life, so come out and speak for yourself. You are your own [life’s] voice. I have faith in myself, which is why I’m here today. Thank you very much.”
Only two Indians have won the Miss Universe crown before Harnaaz. Sushmita Sen was the first woman to win the title in 1994. Six years later, in 2000, Lara Dutta has crowned Miss Universe.
In October, Harnaaz was crowned Miss Universe India 2021. The 21-year-old beauty queen is studying for her Master’s degree in Public Administration at the moment.
Harnaaz Sandhu began competing in beauty pageants when she was barely 17 years old. She previously won Miss Diva 2021, Femina Miss India Punjab 2019, and Femina Miss India 2019. She also placed in the Top 12 at Femina Miss India 2019.
